Hope everyone had a good week. Busy week with many end of school year parental responsibilities and events. Here’s some Stuff Eugene Liked This Week:
Canada Offers An Apology for Native Students’ Abuse [ny times] – the absolute most important read if you haven’t had a chance to read it already. Here are some of the excerpts from Prime Minister Harper’s statement of apology.
What’s Fueling Global Warning Hysteria This Week [@ Broken Telegraph] – one of my growing favorite Quest bloggers. And particularly in the Northwest, it takes some guts to question the whole global warming [un]debate.
What I Did with My Stimulus Check [@ God’s Politics] – a provocative read. Here’s just the first paragraph:
On May 9, 2008, I received an “economic stimulus payment” from you for the amount of $600.00. I’m concerned that I received this check in error. As I understand it, you are $9 trillion in debt. You have outstanding bills with:
a) 47 million people in the United States without health insurance
b) 27 million Iraqis
c) 35.5 million Americans living without adequate food
d) 744,000 people in the U.S. without a place to live
e) 2.9 million disabled U.S. veterans
f) at least one polar bear
According to Psalm 37:21, “The wicked borrow, and don’t pay back, but the righteous give generously.” The money you gave to me was borrowed against your debt. As I see it, this is neither wise nor just.
@ THE MOVIES: Saw the new Indiana Jones film and I can’t tell you how disappointed I was. Geez. I think I was more disppointed with this one than the Star Wars Prequels. Anyone else?
